IR DR Application Process

The University of Chicago Department of Radiology accepts two residents per year into the IR/DR residency program. All positions are filled through the National Residency Matching Program (NRMP) utilizing the Electronic Residency Application System (ERAS). For information, please visit their websites at aamc.org/eras and www.nrmp.org.

Required Application Materials:

  • Completed ERAS application
  • MSPE (formerly Dean’s Letter)
  • Transcripts
  • USMLE Step 1 Scores – we do not require USLME Step 2 scores be available by October 1st, but passages of both USLME Step 1 and 2 are required for entry into the program.
  •  Personal Statement
  •  Curriculum Vitae
  • A minimum of 2 Letters of your choice
  • J1 visas accepted/sponsored

All applicants must complete all pre-requisite training in an ACGME-accredited internship or residency program before entering or transferring into an ACGME-accredited residency/fellowship program. This includes residents entering into a PGY2 level specialty. 

We will begin accepting applications in September 2021 for advanced positions to begin in July 2023. ZOOM interviews will be held on these 3 dates: November 3, 5, and 10, 2021. All of the interview days will be through ZOOM.  There will not be any in-person interviews.

We review all applications and invite candidates to interview as the review process proceeds.  If you have applied for radiology residency through ERAS, you will be notified by e-mail if an invitation to interview will be issued.  The timing of your interview does not affect your chances of obtaining a position in our residency program.  Once you have received an invitation to interview, please respond as promptly as possible. Interviews are conducted on  2 Wednesdays and a Friday, via ZOOM.  

While there is not a strict deadline, applicants are encouraged to submit all materials promptly as invitations are offered continuously.
